Introduction

When you visit the EHA website and/or EHA’s resource platform(s) (this includes all websites and pages, with the exemption of www.t2evolve.eu, and will be hereinafter collectively referred to as ‘Platform’), EHA may place one or more cookies (small text files) on your device and/or may use JavaScript, HTML 5 and other digital technologies to collect information from your device.

In EHA’s Privacy Statement, EHA describes how personal data that we obtain from your device via the use of cookies is processed in more detail and we provide information on how to exercise your privacy rights.

Analytical cookies

Analytical cookies, also known as statistical cookies, allow us to further develop and improve the functionality of our Platform by analyzing your use of our Platform.

 

Through our data analytics tool, Google Analytics from Google LLC (Google), we receive information on how you use and interact with our Platform, as well as on the amount of time that you spend on it. EHA also collects basic information that relates to the request that is made from your browser when you visit the Platform. These data may include the following information:

  • your last visit date and time;
  • the duration of your visit;
  • the timestamp of the browser request;
  • your IP address and basic HTTP header information (like referral URL and user agent); and/or
  • information about a website you have previously visited as well as demographic information.

 

EHA uses Google Tag Manager to place and manage cookies and scripts.

 

EHA has followed the Manual for Privacy Friendly Google Analytics Settings of the Dutch Data Protection Authority for the use of Google Analytics. This means, among other things, that EHA has instructed Google to delete the last three digits of your IP address (making it difficult to trace the IP address to a specific user/visitor) and that EHA has disabled the default settings for sharing data with Google. In addition, EHA has entered into a data processing agreement with Google. EHA does not use any other Google services in combination with the Google Analytics cookies. The limited information that is shared with Google using Google Analytics can be transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
